From Queen Elizabeth to Ronald Regan, Lance Burton has defied gravity for some of the biggest historical figures, entertainers and stars in the world. His over 30 years as a magician have made him a legend in illusion.
Burton has become a late night regular, performing his tricks for several late-night hosts, including Johnny Carson, Jay Leno and Craig Ferguson. In fact, during Johnny Carson’s tenure at the Tonight Show, Burton was allowed an unprecedented 12-minute routine. After, Burton went on to wow the audience with his magic a total of ten times while Johnny Carson was host. In addition to late-night fame, Burton recently completed his fourth TV special, featuring young magicians. His specials air on FOX Family channel and internationally.
Burton once performed an eight-week trial at the Folies Bergere, a Parisian Music Hall, in Las Vegas. Burton did such an impressive job; this was extended for nine years. It wasn’t until 1994 that Burton made his way back to Las Vegas, signing a 13-year contract, with the Monte Carlo Resort, the longest contract given to any entertainer in Vegas history. Burton was given the honor of starring, producing and directing this new lavish magic show. The doors to Burton’s award-winning show opened on June 21st, 1996 and haven’t closed yet!
The Monte Carlo Resort is the perfect venue for an illusionist to capture the attention of his audience. Located in a beautiful hotel modeled after the French Riviera, the Monte Carlo Resort offers some of the finest restaurants and entertainment the strip has to offer. Enjoy a pre-show dinner at Diablo’s Cantina as this sultry and spicy Mexican restaurant lures you in with Mexican food with an American twist. Or, for something more tame, enjoy a delicious Chinese cuisine at the Dragon Noodle in a hip, new, vibrant atmosphere. And what’s a Vegas trip without a visit to a casino? The Monte Carlo Resort offers plenty of table games, slots, poker rooms and more. It’s all up to you. But make sure you don’t miss out on Lance Burton! He’s one of the world’s most fascinating magicians and seeing him in Vegas makes it all the more magical.
